Solid Waste & Recycling

Willimantic Waste uses Split Truck for Solid Waste & Recycling Pickup – The truck that Willimantic Waste now uses in Tolland for Solid Waste and Recycling is a split truck.  As you can see from the picture, one half of the truck is for trash and the other half is for recycling.  This truck will be used in Tolland for an indefinite period of time.  Please make sure both your totes are put out the evening before your normal pickup day.  In using this truck, they are able to save time on their daily routes.

Town sponsored metal/bulky waste pick-up will be picked up 2 times per year (no charge).  Town sponsored metal/bulky waste items will be picked up during September 2015 (week of Sept. 14th) and April 2016 (week of April 4th).  Our vendor, Willimantic Waste Paper, will do 10 additional monthly metal/bulky waste at curbside pick-ups per year with the resident being charged by the vendor $32 per pick-up for up to (4) reasonable sized items.  Reservations are not confirmed until payment is received by Willimantic Waste Paper for those months where there is a charge.  Paid reservations can only be done by calling Willimantic Waste Paper at the phone number below.  Oil pick-up at curbside has been eliminated due to environmental concerns.  Some auto parts businesses take used motor oil.  Bill’s Auto Parts is one local option.  All other procedures for bulky waste will remain the same.

To schedule this pick-up please call (800) 286-5335 or (860) 423-4527 or go here and click on “Tolland Residents Only” to schedule your bulky waste pick-up.  Remember, you must schedule at least 4 days in advance. For a complete list of acceptable items please visit us on the web.
